She’s great at giving advice, too bad she never takes it…

Piper Anderson wants to be a serious journalist at a serious paper covering serious news. Instead, she’s stuck at the Pendleton Falls Herald, where her massive investigative skills are wasted penning the paper’s advice column, Miss Behave.

Her shot at a meaty story comes when she’s assigned to write up a profile of a local business, Brookes Jewelers. She is determined to write the piece so she can use the article to impress a real paper.

Unfortunately Hunter Brookes, co-owner of Brookes Jewelers and the Pendleton Falls Herald, is rather persistent, in his own hot little way, that the piece should be nothing more than a glorified sales pitch.

But when diamonds disappear, Piper may get the chance to do a real investigation, leading her to confront family secrets and worst of all, turn to her mother for help.

Piper soon realizes that there is more to Mr. Brookes than a tight ass and a ridiculous fascination with name tags. Together they deal with roasted pigs, crazy cat ladies, and gun-toting fashionistas.
In all the chaos, they just might find the one thing that neither one was looking for: true love.

My Review

If you are looking for a book that has sass and brings the humor than, you do not need to look any further, than, Miss Behave by Traci Highland. It is always a great thing when you have fun reading a book. That is exactly what I did while reading this book.

Piper has such a bubbly personality. It is infectious. I really loved her advice column. Although, Piper may not like the fluff pieces but she does dole out funny but truthful advice. Oh, and she likes to recommend that many problems can be solved with alcohol; especially margaritas. Which, you can't go wrong with a great margarita.

This book may be a cozy mystery but that does not mean that the chemistry between Piper and her boss, Hunter are nothing but H-O-T. I would classify it as PG-13. It was easy to see why Piper was falling for Hunter. He is easy on the eyes and has a charming personality. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.




Dear Miss Behave,
Last weekend I was at the pool with the children, and there was a woman naked and walking around the locker room. 
I hate to be prissy, but to be naked around young children like that just isn’t right.  She comes to the pool regularly and I am not the only one who has happened upon her strolling around the locker room without clothes.  Now I know there are showers and that people change in locker rooms, but showers should be taken while wearing bathing suits and there are private changing rooms that are clearly marked. 
How can I convey to her the accepted rules of decency before any of our children become hopelessly corrupted?

Dear Agape,
Do please get over yourself. People shower naked.  If you choose not to, then I assume you probably smell and your skin is beset by odd rashes. 
I suggest that you buy your kids an ice-cream and treat yourself to a margarita.  Life is short, darling. Lighten up.
